Stephen O. • Podcast Delivery Jul 8, 2024

"(Season: The Skies Are Watching)...captivating characters and truly unsettling vibes. The Skies Are Watching serves up an entirely fictional and wildly potent mix of mystery, aliens & UFOs, along with a few whiffs of conspiracy."

Miranda Sawyer • The Guardian Jul 6, 2024

"(Season: The Skies Are Watching) ...beautifully recorded and really well acted, this is the latest in the reliably excellent Limelight slot, which proves that Radio 4 dramas can be properly good...a hard recommend for The Skies Are Watching."

Kev (Tea In The Sahara) • Tea In The Sahara Jul 1, 2024

"(Season: The Skies Are Watching) “The Skies Are Watching” presents a unique and entertaining concept to complement any beach or pool setting. The small voice casting is stellar, including wrestling icon Jake ‘The Snake’ Roberts (remember him), adding a rich, raspy patina to his vocal delivery as UFO eccentric David Vance."

Gregg Stockdale • The Podcast Geek Jun 18, 2023

"(Series: Siege - 2022)The story is very well written, and brilliantly acted. It’s a refreshing take on a crime drama, even with the obligatory twist at the end. You may find the characters somewhat “tropey”, and they are. I don’t think you can really escape that in a drama such as this though. The story demands it. They are so well portrayed though, that it’s easy to overlook this."

"(Series: Siege - 2022) ...such a great drama series...Modern, real, exciting; great acting, careful sound design, gripping plot...considerable forces created a five x 30-minute thriller, produced by BBC Cymru Wales, that zoomed straight on to my best of the year list."
